Title:Beyond the tunnel problem: Addressing cross-cutting issues that impact vulnerable youth
Organization:Youth Transition Funders Group
Short Description:This paper drills down and focuses on a the “school-to-prison pipeline” that often forces youth off the track to educational opportunities and onto a track destined to end in juvenile detention or prison.
Annotation:"This paper is the second in a series of briefing papers designed to inform officials, practitioners, funders, advocates, scholars and the general public about cross-cutting challenges and possible solutions to working across systems to deliver effective services to youth impacted by the juvenile justice, foster care, and education systems. The first paper in the Beyond the Tunnel Problem series began by presenting a typology of cross-cutting issues. This paper drills down and focuses on a specific problem: the “school-to-prison pipeline” that often forces our youth off the track to educational opportunities and future economic and personal success."
